The script language of C-Kermit and K95 is virtually identical for any pair of concurrent releases of the two programs, except that K95 has a lot of commands and features (mostly related to terminal emulation) that C-Kermit does not, and of course the details of device and filename syntax differ (as, in fact, they do between UNIX, Windows, VMS, VOS, AOS/VS, and other platforms where C-Kermit and K95 run). Aside from these differences, compatibility is assurred by the fact that C-Kermit and k95 have the same command processor.
The script language of MS-DOS Kermit 3.15 and later (which has an entirely separate code base from C-Kermit and K95) is a large subset of that of C-Kermit and K95, including FOR, WHILE, SWITCH, etc, as well as arrays, functions, built-in variables, and so on. It is greatly advanced over MS-DOS Kermit 3.14 and earlier.
A library of sample scripts is available for each of these programs through the links below. Most of these scripts are oriented more towards recent releases of Kermit than towards earlier ones.
User submissions are welcome. Send them to:
indicating clearly which Kermit program and version are required. Include
comments explaining what the script does, what features it illustrates,
hints for adapting it to other situations, etc.
